"Banished to the basement, the 29-year-old mother with a childlike mind
and another baby on the way had little more than a thin rug and a mattress to call her own on the chilly concrete floor.
Dorothy Dixon ate what she could forage from the refrigerator upstairs, where housemates used her for target practice with BBs, burned her with a glue gun and doused her with scalding liquid that peeled away her skin. They torched what few clothes she had, so she walked around naked. They often pummeled her with an aluminum bat or metal handle.
Dixon -- six months pregnant -- died after weeks of abuse." http://www.cnn.com/2008/CRIME/03/21/torture.slaying.ap/index.html?iref=mpstoryview
In case you think that's an anomaly, visit YouTube videos such as this "comedy" about hunting disabled people:
Blogger doesn't seem to be posting videos right now, but go visit the link.
Lest you think the filmmaker is just a backwoods criminal, he's a film student at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Since when are hate crimes funny? He has not just one but multiple videos mocking disabled people. Damn Nazi.
